IWCA Luncheon at the NCA Annual Convention

‚ÄčFeaturing Henriette Kolb, Head, IFC Gender Secretariat, International Finance Corporation

Friday, March 18, 12:30–2:00 pm


When women acquire the tools to grow better coffee, negotiate prices, or even build their own coffee mill, they typically reinvest 90% of their income in their families and community. This cycle of positive change can transform entire villages, and creates a more sustainable future for our industry.

Join the International Women in Coffee Alliance for this luncheon event to discuss the imperative issue of gender equality in coffee and meet professionals committed to the cause. 

All men & women (including non-registrants) are welcome to attend. Please note that this is a ticketed event.
